LED street lights and a smart operating system will be given by an Austrian company to Serbian municipal authorities, according to an announcement at an event in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia. Zumtobel Group AG’s donation will be sufficient for two streets. “With the decision to give modern equipment for the improvement of transport in the city streets of Belgrade and Niš, Zumtobel Group confirmed the intention to expand operations in Serbia and the region of Southeastern Europe and remain on this market in the long term.
“This is another proof of the developing economic cooperation of Austria and Serbia,” said Marko Čadež, the chamber’s president, in discussion with the representatives of the firm. The plan is that the company’s experts find the most suitable locations in cooperation with the city officials, so that one street in both Belgrade and Niš can get efficient lighting within a month. Zumtobel, based in Dornbirn and listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange, has 7,234 employees and production facilities in four continents.
